... s a bit awkward because a coconut is obviously not round. You had to have at least one bounce before it hit the pins, so I just aimed the bounce as near as I could. It turned out I was quite good at doing that. I ended up getting a turkey. As a result of being awesome, I won a schooner and 2 jugs of beer. I shared one with the others, and we kept the other for the next day, as we were getting sleepy. Yesterday we woke up and held a koala. This was part of ...
... day trip and much better for Rafe but the two of us are a little disappointed at not being able to see the island properly and really take it all in. It sort of feels like cheating just going over to a resort on one of the wonders of the world but I guess you just have to adjust your expectations when travelling with a very small child.

Found a cafe to have a chai or a coffee before getting back on the really big ferry this time for a fast trip back to Port of Airlie, getting back just after sunset around 6:00 PM. Had a great day, but tired now so I think we'll have an early ...
... for a better walk but Swamp Bay Beach turns up a couple of interesting features. We notice from a signboard that camping is allowed around the beach area but with a single 'long drop' and nothing much else the lone camper with nothing more than a hammock must be really roughing it. He/she was still in it's hammock and hopefully in good health as I had noticed a snake on our way down. We leave the sleeper and head back down the trail and join the path around Mount ...
